I moved to Newport News, Va a little before Christmas and I just discovered a cool little hole-in-the-wall record store. Tons of CDs, cassettes, and vinyl. In the ABB section of vinyl they had: The Road Goes On Forever, Enlightened Rogues, Brothers and Sisters, Reach for the Sky, Win Lose or Draw, Brothers of the Road, and Gregg and Duane. They also had Allman and Woman, and they had Highway Call and Atlanta's Burning Down. In addition to all that they had Cats on the Coast and the self titled album from Sea Level. They had a couple other ABB related albums that I can't remember right now. I don't own a turntable but I'm thinking about buying all of those records. It would be cool to have them. I'm toying with the idea of buying a turntable so I can listen to all that vinyl.

Get a turntable- you'll be glad you did. I recommend Technics brand turntables, I've got a 1980s vintage SL-3350 that I purchased from a jukebox and turntable guy a few years ago and I love it. I collect vinyl and it's always a thrill to go to record conventions and record stores now. There's all kinds of cool retro stuff out there in near mint condition that will never be reprinted on CD or MP3. Hipster college kids collect records now, too, so record stores in college towns are good places to start. Have fun!

I always loved that album when I was a kid and just picked up a nice copy on vinyl for a few bucks. I specialize in collecting Hendrix, Blues and Jazz on vinyl. Even though I have most of the original source shows in their entirety on DVD or CD, I still love the original Hendrix live albums. My favorite of them all is The Jimi Hendrix Concerts- absolutely killer performances of some of his best songs. Check out the Are You Experienced? and Red House versions- incredible guitar meltdowns.

I havent heard that one in ages. I remember that has the "God Save The Queen/Sgt Pepper medley. It supposed to go into "Spanish castle Magic" but fades out. I don't know why they didn't just include it.

For me the vinyl vs cd debate goes along the lines of tube vs solid state

Warmth is good...all the way around

Technics is one of the few brands that I'm familiar with. I can't remember what kind my mom used to have. I haven't listened to much vinyl since my younger years when she had one around the house. She had some good albums. Lots of Dead, James Taylor, Billy Joel, Bob Seeger, ect. The good ole days.

I noticed that over this past Holiday Season that they actually were selling freshly- pressed vinyl records and turntables again at Fred Meyer, an Oregon- based big box department/ grocery store chain. I noticed records like Cream: Disraeli Gears, Van Halen I, Lynyrd Skynyrd: Pronounced LS, Led Zeppelin I, etc. The turntables they were selling were probably cheap USB- friendly ones for transfering vinyl to your hard drive. I really prefer the durability and toughness of a vintage Technics turntable, though. That's why all of the old school DJs and Hip Hop guys all use Technics- "they're built like a tank" said one turntable specialist. Vinyl records are actually increasing in sales every year now, while CD sales have plummeted in the past 10 years. Vinyl DOES rule!!

No doubt...
I work during the day at an independent record store here in Greenville, NC and we sell way more vinyl than we do cds these days.

I've been buying new releases on vinyl at shows lately. Most of the bands include a link for a digital download also, so you get the best of both worlds... Sound quality aside, there is nothing like the look and feel of a full size jacket. Art just loses something when it is shrunk to CD size!
